On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, LGBTQ+ singer-songwriter, and piano virtuoso, Stefano May channels intimate experiences of pain with his new single and video for Crazy.
The hauntingly beautiful ballad Crazy by Stefano May was created alongside producer Chico Bennett (Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Killers). Stefano reaches deep into our pscyche to create a deeply reflective, achingly raw demonstration of stirring vulnerability, and desolate take on the dark corners of enduring devotion. We watch Stefano grapple with isolationism and the ghosts of his past as he journeys across abandoned beaches, lonely rooftops, and the solitude of his bedroom in this contemplative music video.
A classically trained pianist, Stefano uses his rich background to create a vocally driven piece with a dim and distorted piano hook.
“In everyone’s life, there is a moment when words cannot convey the gravity of a troubling situation to another. The power and beauty of music builds connection and closes this gap,” explained Stefano May.
Born in Soveria Mannelli, Italy, Stefano is a singer, songwriter and piano virtuoso with an aim to heal thorugh music. Marked with hope, love and connection, Stefano takes his audience on an enthralling journey with a fusion of soul, pop and classical music.

Since then, he has collaborated with famed songwriters, as well as the acclaimed film director Franco Zeffirelli. Stefano has honed his craft in order to compose and score motion picture soundtracks, under the guidance of award-winning filmmaker Jamal Joseph.
In 2019, Stefano launched his solo career with his debut single Prayer, created with the famed producer Chico Bennett (Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Killers, Prince). Stefano’s warm and confessional vocals have an otherworldy quality, brimming with passion and delicate vibrato tones over intimate piano.
Earning comparisons to Sam Smith, Andrea Bocelli, and Michael Bublé, the lyrics in Prayer detail the act of loving again after hardship, and mark a graceful and exciting debut for this artist on the rise.
We Are The Power
In We Are The Power, Stefano gives soulful vocals and a soaring melody to ask his listeners to take part in healing the world together. The vivacious chorus, complete with a gospel choir, gives a heartfelt demonstration of love, optimism, and vitality. After almost two years of collective hardship and widespread disease, We Are The Power is the perfect anthem to inspire bright beginnings for the new year ahead.
“It is a song that describes the importance of every person’s mission to use their individual gifts to unify the world in harmony and peace,” explained Stefano.
Find My Way
Created as a musical tribute to Motown, Find My Way demontrates how that world of music inspired has Stefano’s musical taste and sound since he was a young child. The lyrics were inspired by his mother, who raised Stefano to pursue big dreams and share his gifts with strength, patience, and heartfelt dedication.
